LONDON, December 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
-Data gathered by Holiday Hypermarket shows that British holidaymakers are continuing to increase the amount they are willing to spend on their holidays-
Holiday Hypermarket, a UK based holiday comparison community, say the average holidaymaker spent 25 per cent more on their holidays in the last quarter of 2011 than they did in the same period in 2010.
Holiday Hypermarket found that its customers were spending an average of £533 on holidays to Benidorm and other exciting destinations between October and December in 2010. This figure contrasts sharply with the 2011 spend for the same months which went up to £667, an increase of £134. This amounts to a 25 per cent surge in spending.
Calum MacDonald, Online Marketing Manager for Holiday Hypermarket comments: "Amid a great deal of financial turmoil, British consumers are still very interested in spending money on trips abroad. We saw spending dip considerably several years ago, but since then there has been a clear upward trend."
Holiday Hypermarket offers British customers the chance to purchase excellent value holidays to destinations all over the world. In recent years, holidays to Malta and other nearby destinations have been most popular, yet the company say its customers are also keen to head to countries further afield.
MacDonald continues: "Holidays are an important way to relax and spend time with friends and family. Given the recent economic turmoil, we are very pleased to see that Brits continue to highlight holidays as invaluable time to dedicate to themselves. In 2012, we expect this trend to persist as our customers continue to get the most out of their time off."
